    I have been working at Sanofi Genzyme full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Stable company, terrific headquarters facility, good salary and benefits. Good for entry level to get feet wet.

    Cons

    Long hours, unreasonable deadlines (continual issue), complicated systems (good luck getting something paid), complicated reporting, poor systems training, horrible communications (management needs a class or two), and no concept of employee retention. It has been a downhill ride since the Sanofi purchase. You are expected to be connected at all times including weekends, vacations, and US holidays (you are on the French calendar). If you are a workaholic that likes to be unappreciated, Finance is for you.

    Advice to Management

    Take a class in communications - as abhorrent is too mild a word to describe it. You are burning out your finance staff, plain and simple. When the economy eventually improves, turnover is going to be extreme. Way too much time and effort is spent on budgets, multiple forecasts, and long range plans each year. Finance does not have enough bandwith or time to perform basic analysis at month end. Hire more people in your consolidation function in Paris, and give your business units more time to close and analyze the books.
